Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Optimal Use of mechanical circulatory support devices to Minimize Pump Thrombosis & AEs

There is a need for the development of a collaborative observational study that leverages off of existing registries, such as INTERMACS and STS, that will follow mechanical circulatory support devices (mechanical circulatory support device) patients prospectively and collect process-of-care data to identify 1) optimal approaches for the management of patients and 2) pumps to minimize the occurrence of adverse hemodynamic outcomes. This collaborative venture needs to include a wide array of multi-disciplinary experts, including cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, device designers, and bioengineers to focus on a common goal of optimizing mechanical circulatory support device use to minimize adverse outcomes.
